OSF Little Company of Mary Requesting Public to Limit Visits

Dec 05, 2022 - To protect patients, family members and staff during this time of increased COVID-19, seasonal flu activity and other upper respiratory illnesses, we are asking the public to limit visits as a precautionary measure.

Effective December 5, 2022, it is requested that:

  • Mask are required.
  • To maintain physical distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, two (2) visitors per patient will be allowed at one time.
  • Visitors should be at least 18 years of age and older. This will minimize exposure of patients to children, who are known to be high risk for transmission of viral infections, and will protect children from contracting an illness while visiting the hospital.  
  • Please do not visit hospitalized patients if you are not feeling well, particularly if you have had flu-like symptoms during the past seven days. Symptoms include a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, cough, and/or sore throat. 
  • Remember to cough and/or sneeze into your arm or shoulder or use a tissue. The spread of germs can be reduced by coughing into your clothing. Avoid covering your mouth with your hands, as the germs can easily be passed through direct contact with surfaces or people. 

To assist in limiting the spread of disease, please wear a mask, wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand foam/gel when entering and leaving a patient’s room.
